The excitement of chance charges a moment with anticipation, with breathlessness. In a casino fortunes are built and lost with the flip of a card or the toss of the dice. The bright contrasting colours of Golden Eagle  capture the visceral experience of that moment. The salmon, here depicted in the eagle’s wings, have always been a symbol of plenitude. The diamond shape, the sun, the wing-shaped legs and simplicity of form are designed to be a lucky charm for all who have the eyes to see it.
